Meet Mariell!

Mariell: Your New Jewelry Best Friend!

Don’t get me wrong, I love living with my husband (most of the time) but I often find myself missing the years I spent living with my girlfriends. Watching trashy TV together (for some strange reason I just can’t get my husband to sit down and watch The Real Housewives with me), having impromptu dance parties, cooking together; I miss it all! One of the hardest things about moving away from them though is that my closet was cut in half! No longer can I roam into their bedrooms and go “shopping” for something new to wear. It was the perfect situation; tons of new (to me) items that I knew would be stylish because well, my friends are fab. I bet it’s something all of us girls miss as we get older, so Flair tries to recreate that experience for you. When you shop at Flair, we want it to feel like you’re shopping in your friend’s closet; easy, quick, fun and full of items handpicked to please! Case in point: our new jewelry designer, Mariell! Flair spent a long time looking for a jewelry designer that has the three necessities: high quality, stylish products, at great prices, with a quick turnaround time. And boy, have we found it! Check out some of our favorite items below and then give us a call to stop by our “closet” and poke through all of our fabulous, new jewelry collection. You can also check out tons of Mariell products on our online site, Frills, from the comfort of your own closet! Happy shopping, Flair friends!

Non-traditional Registry Ideas!

our-honeymoon-registry.com

There is a new trend in the wedding presents. Forget the registry but look at websites such as TheHoneymoon.com and GiftsofStock.com. These are a little unconventional but they are classier than just asking for money. Often times the couple only has select things on a registry or unsure of what exactly they need.

With GiftsofStock the couple can receive stocks. (Smart financial investment!) With TheHoneymoon.com the couple can relax a little bit more because their family and friends can pitch in and help pay for the honeymoon! Sweet Deal!

Think outside the box…literally!

The “Golden Ticket” to becoming a bridesmaid!

We LOVE our brides…..and we hope that comes through everyday in out Blog posts.  We really love when they share with us all the creative and fun ideas they have for their weddings and one very special bride Marissa shared with us, her creative and fun way she asked her closest friends and family to be a part of her big day!

As we have said many time ETSY is the place to look for cool, creative and fun gifts etc…..and Marissa used ETSY to find the perfect way to ask her girls to be there with her on the most important day of her life!  ENJOY!!!

Seriously….can it get any cuter than this???

Wipe away those tears….I know I had to!  What a fantasic and nice idea!

We’ll say it again….we love our brides they are so fab!

Here’s where you can find these Custom-Made Wonka Bars!

We love Marissa’s “Pure Imagination”!

Fashion’s Night Out: A Retrospecive

Hello happy brides and maids! Did you hit up Fashion’s Night Out? It’s the first time this event has taken place in Boston for 15 years and we were pumped to check it out! What a cool concept; fabulous stores stay open late, pump you full of free apps and beverages and give you discount on their wares. Hello, nothing wrong with that! Plus, we secretly loved walking in the middle of a blocked off Newbury Street.

Some Flair favs:

1)      DVF (duh, always a fav) had some AMAZING deals! Stacey found an adorable black lace mini for $325. Perfect for a rehearsal dinner, shower, etc.

2)      Ted Baker had some adorable dresses! They are super fun and flirty, perfect for a bachelorette! One of our favorites was a black cocktail dress with a tiered skirt. The fabric was a layer of tulle with chiffon sewn over top, so unique!

3)      Bobbles and Lace is a new addition to Newbury Street, with a recent move from the North End.  We are sure they’ll be a HUGE success with the venue change! This is definitely the place to hit up for bridesmaids’ jewelry. We’re already planning a trip back there to take a more in depth peek, be on the lookout for more info on them in a future blog…

In short, we hope it doesn’t take another 15 years to have a Boston’s Fashion Night Out! We’re sure it was a huge success and are already looking forward to next year!

Fashionably Yours

Linds & Stace

 

Stuff We Love…..Who needs to cut a cake anymore???

Seriously…..who needs a traditional cake when you  can have ICE CREAM!

Even better have it pull right up to your wedding venue or rehearsal dinner by none other than the,

ICE CREAM TRUCK!

Soooo cute and an amazing photo op for both you and your guests!

The Ice Cream Truck has everything you could want and more…..pre-packaged favorites from our childhood,  some amazing soft serve, sundaes and banana splits!

Count me in!!

Sure to be the biggest hit at your wedding….beside your beautiful dress of course 😉

Adorable for a city wedding or on the Cape….remember the Ice Cream Truck will come to you…..and seriously it is way cheaper and cooler than having a regular old cake!!

Check out some amazing Ice Cream Truck Rentals from our friends over at:

Things we LOVE: Say my name, say my name…

OK, I’ve been reading some of the wedding blogs recently and they say to not go overboard on the personalized details at your wedding. All I can say is 1) oops, too late and 2) why not?? I get that your guests probably don’t need a reminder as to whose wedding they are attending (if they do they probably should have been cut from the list to begin with) but I personally am a sucker for personalization.

Why not send subtle reminders to your guests as to who the queen and king are that day? Besides that, I am really proud of the work I’ve put into all the details of my wedding and I literally want my name all over the place. Call me vain if you like, but it’s my day (oh, and his too) and I’ll personalize if I want to! Below are some of my fav personalized goodies. I guess if you want to be a blog follower you can choose just one, but I say, if your budget allows, go for all of them!

1) At just $17.99 for 100, these cocktail napkins are a no brainer. Plus, it can’t hurt for people to be thinking about you along with their alcohol, especially when they may have their checkbooks on them…

2) This hanger is absolutely adorable. My Flair girls got it for me and I am ob-sessed! It will obviously keep my gown looking good on the day of the wedding, but in the meantime it has a place of honor hanging on the drawer of my bedside table. I know all of my other hangers are jealous…

3) My Bridal Bling is a super cute company started by a newly engaged bride. They have personalized goodies for the bride as well as the bridal party, and honestly who can’t use another item of clothing with crystals?? http://www.facebook.com/pages/My-Bridal-Bling/

4) My fiancé is half Chinese and I could not resist getting these fortune cookies for our favors (of course I checked with him first to make sure they weren’t too cheesy but luckily he gave his seal of approval!). The fortune inside has our names, wedding date and thanks our guests for coming; such a nice touch! Plus, they come in tons of colors to match your scheme and they are delish! Of course I broke into them already and am saving the fortune for my wedding memory book. Too cute! http://fancyfortunecookies.com/

So here’s what the package includes:

UNLIMITED Core Fusion and Yoga classes

Weekly Private Check-in’s with your Mind Body Manager

Three or More Facials with an Exhale Skincare Specialist

One relaxing restorative massage

Such a great deal for all you soon-to-be-brides who want to get in shape for the BIG day and that amazing honeymoon you have planned!!

 

Relax and exhale….until next time!

Toms: Maybe the smartest wedding decision you’ll ever make?

OK that might be an exaggeration, but they should definitely be near the top of the list! Let’s face it, when all is said and done all you’re going to want to do at your reception is relax and boogie down. Well, there’s no more comfortable (and cute) boogie down shoe than Toms. Even better, they’re reasonably priced and totally re-wearable after the wedding!   Plus, they now come in sparkly hues fit for a princess bride.  It’s a no brainer ladies! They’d make a super cute bridesmaids’ gift too, so you can all ditch your heels and do the running man ‘til the cows come home (or atleast until the cleanup staff arrives)!

P.S. The BIGGEST Bonus about buying Toms is that they have an amazing movement/charitable spirit.

For every pair of  Toms you buy they give a free pair to a child in need! One for One!
